Description
Radius Care is a New Zealand owned and operated company that specialises in delivering the very best levels of Rest Home and Private Hospital care for our elderly population and our young disabled who require special care.

Our vision for Radius is to deliver “good old fashioned Kiwi values and standards” back into the aged care sector and this is a commitment shared by our strong nationwide network of 19 facilities. Each of these facilities share a responsibility to provide the best levels of professional nursing care, which is delivered by our staff to over 1400 residents.

So when the time comes to choose a care facility for yourself or a loved one, call any one of our managers to talk about your circumstances or just drop in for a chat. They will be more than happy to answer any questions you have, and will show you around any one of our facilities.

Tucked behind native and exotic trees, Radius Peppertree is located just minutes from the centre of Palmerston North on Roberts Line, Kelvin Grove. While close to all the main traffic routes, Radius Peppertree provides a peaceful environment away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
